It's a fudge, but it never has any problem ripping discs. I'm doing almost exactly what James Oltman is describing here http://mythtv.org/pipermail/mythtv-users/2005-July/095398.html except that I rip the whole disc with DVDShrink then use Nero to burn the iso to hard drive then ftp it to my myth box. The down side is that it's a bit more labour intensive and usually takes more than an hour to do, but so far it has worked every time.

Just use DVDBackup to create the iso. It also removes protection and 
does better error handling than dd (for scritched disks... etc)

Takes max. 10 minutes on my system.
